in the morning. they say mitt romney continues to fail the details test. tax cuts, replacing obama, replacing wall street reform. double down on the big economic ideas that crashed the economy. what is missing from that line? anything about the president. just about mitt romney. >> that is consistent what we heard from governor o'malley just now saying i was listening very closely for new idea on job creation. i didn't hear one. we're hearing those talking points already. >> undoubtedly the coverage next couple days will be interesting. we head into a vice-presidential aol debate. the last vice-presidential debate got more viewers than the presidential debates largely because of sarah palin. >> call me joe. owe biden. >> and i think this will be another very well-watched and spirited debate. two very interesting, very position gnat, you know, in some ways both of them are the heart beat of the campaign. biden clearly more notional guy, excitable guy. ryan certainly more passionate and probably much more articulate when it comes to litigating the specifics of medicare and complex budget issues

. he made this a much more competitive general election. i think president obama you know, i don't think he did as badly as the pundits are saying this morning. you know, i think the next debates, he will probably have a different demeanor. i think the debate last night was much more important obviously to mitt romney then to barack obama. i don't now how much this really changes the landscape because look, this race is very competitive. if you look at the battleground states, sure, depending on the polls president obama is winning and all of them but the margins are pretty close, and i think the other thing that the debates could do for democrats and the president and also for the voters is you know, for our sides too is signaled the game is on and i think you will see much more enthusiasm. people talk about the enthusiasm gap. hart research does the polling for nbc news and "the wall street journal" are go for example with one group. >> so you are the conspiracy -- if hugh are the conspiratorial of the left-wing polling. >> so, barack obama is ahead with latinos but the crush i

: thanks in washington. "the wall street journal" this morning another comparison between the two candidates is and so much on the role of government, the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants the new economic patriotism that mitt romney calls the presidential campaign a battle for the soul of america. the candidates are not only racing to win an election but they are dueling over the mantle of patriotism with each claiming to stand for the true american values, the implication still beyond rhetoric and extend to their thinking about domestic and foreign policy which is what we are talking about this morning. next is a call from janice in louisiana. a democrat. good morning. >> caller: hello. yes, i would like the government to [inaudible] >> host: janice, are you still there? we lost her. apologies. let's move on to gary in eaton ohio. independent. good morning. >> caller: good morning. i think -- i feel that the constitution is there to tell the government what they are supposed to do. and like the guy that brought up water, the epa puts fluoride, they t

, laughlin, nevada. >> caller: good morning, gary. >> guest: good morning. >> caller: republicans and democrats on the same side of the code. it doesn't matter if you vote for obama or romney, you're going to get the same outcome. for a guy like you? there's a change we can believe in. >> host: jeffrey, i'm going to offer up a prediction. it's either romney or obama are elected, that we're going to find ourselves with a heightened police state, something that should be rolled back. i'm going to suggest we're going to find ourselves in a continued state of war. military interventions that result in this case hundreds of millions of enemies to this country that i'm going to argue wouldn't otherwise exist but for our military interventions and then offer up a prediction, obama or romney gets elected, we'll find ourselves continuing to borrow and spend money in ways that are absolutely not sustainable. i think we are looking at a monetary collapse. we just can't escape the mathematics of what we're doing. >> host: is there a question via twitter. they want your take on congress. mr. j

? and then the second part that have question would be how would you contrast the obama campaign versus the romney campaign? >> well, that's a great question. i mean, i remember being in a room -- we used to have the meeting every morning in chicago, and i remember sitting in this room. it was later in the campaign, it was maybe september, october, maybe sometime around this time and we would meet every morning with the senior staff. i remember looking out the window of the high-rise. i remember thinking could i do it again in every day you come together and you plan out what is going to happen during the day and at night i would come home and turn on the tv. because, you know, you have the meeting and everybody scattered and did what they were going to do. you hear what the candidates is going to do that cay and the execution of the event of the day. i would come home at night and see how the event went. you would see the event play ought in the farway city. i think i thought then it was done. this is as much as i could do. i decided i wasn't going duodwo 2012. my son, you know, was now a year ol
